Raheem Sterling's clinically taken opener in the eighth minute suggested a romp in line with City's 6-1 thumping of Huddersfield Town in their previous home game.

Manchester City were surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw by Wolves last weekend but have the chance to return to winning ways at home to Newcastle on Saturday in the Premier League.

Pep Guardiola's side restored their advantage seven minutes after the restart when Walker scored his first goal for the club with a rocket from 30 yards which left Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubrakva with no chance.

Walker is a man of superstitions; he regularly performs a Triple H-esque water spit before games and also wears the same pair of shinpads he's had since being a kid.

Pep Guardiola has dismissed suggestions he is unhappy with Leroy Sane's attitude after he was dropped for Manchester City's victory over Newcastle on Saturday.

At first, it appeared as if he would not be missed.
